Make Your Own Kind of Music
Join Atlanta Freedom Bands for “Glitter & Be Gay!”, a concert celebrating gay and lesbian composers. The concert kicks off the musical celebrations commemorating Stonewall Week in Atlanta.
The program features orchestral masterworks by composers who had to keep their private lives hidden paired with works with works by contemporary composers living openly. Regardless of your orientation, you will enjoy all the great music!
The Concert Band will present the concert twice, once in Atlanta and again as a part of the Augusta Pride Festival, marking AFB’s first-ever concert "outside the perimeter"!
Atlanta Freedom Bands Marching Band and Color Guard will make its first appearance in the Augusta Pride Parade, and The MetroGnomes will be a part of the lineup during the festival itself.
Please join our Atlanta Facebook Event or our Augusta Facebook Event for even more concert information as well as fun details about the composers and the music leading up to the concerts.
We are also hoping to celebrate a well-timed, favorable decision from the Supreme Court that will change the history of our community. More Details
